Beyond Earth Day

Organic Style Magazine

Organic Style Magazine features Julia Butterfly Hill, Randy Hayes and Amma for fresh perspectives on love, life and a sustainable future

San Francisco (April 22, 2008) - The Spring issue of Organic Style magazine (http://www.OrganicStyleMag.com) highlights visionaries who have taken courageous, inspiring action in pursuit of humanitarianism and environmental justice.

The cover story features Julia Butterfly Hill who lived - for 738 days - in an ancient redwood tree to save it from the lumber mill. Now, Hill's non-profit Engage Network works with groups across the nation on building community and undertaking social and environmental action, to help them, as Hill says, "at finding their own trees."

For Amma, compassion for all begins with the simplest, most basic act of human affection. (p. 55)
